Any Navman, check them on the net, they have excellent models in your price range

I always used Navman, most have the ability to upload europe maps, add on live traffic updates ect.

They're easy to use, large touch screen compared to something like a tomtom which tend to be really small but a bit impracticle.

I have a tomtom XL, big screen, very easy to use and best of all cheap :D
Ditto, although mine resets itself during long journeys but soons sorts itself out.
Still recommend it.

hi mate i'd suggest a garmin nuvi 250..these are the dogs.they were originally created for guiding ships at sea
so the manufacturers have massive experience with them,you can also find them for under £100.. and have
downloadable discs to update regularly.....

hope this helps......mark..

You'll do well with pretty much any that you chose, wouldn't bother with the new MP3 and computer inbuilt ones, a satnav is a satnav.

You might want to turn the sound down though if it's got that scary woman voice! :(

Tom Tom One. Think carefully about the XL version (or any large Sat Nav for that matter) - remember it will spend most of its time obscuring your vision.

I have absolutely no problem using or seeing the standard size. Bear in mind that a lot of the time you're just listening to the instruction with only the occasional glance at the screen.
